Scavenger Hunt Sunday

I could not focus on prompts at all this week.  My mind was pretty scattered and focused on something completely different, so please forgive that some of these are a bit of a stretch.

Sunset:
Since the sun never came up/out this week, I didn't have much chance to take a picture of the sunset.  However this was taken right before the sun "went down" as I did want to make sure I took some pictures of the ice (though I stayed on my front porch because ice..not rain...was actually falling from the sky.)

Black and White:
These are the icicles hanging from the bottom of my car...I did "convert" the picture to black and white, but it didn't actually make a difference.

A Day in My Life:
Okay, so this is not a typical day in my life, but it was like this all week.  No school, no work, all fun.

It really was serene to stay home all week and the landscape looked peaceful and calm so linking the above photo with Saturday Sareenity.

Four:
Yes, I took pictures through the window of the 4 of them building snowmen.  I did this solely for artistic effect.  Staying inside warm and dry had nothing to do with my choice of photographic vision.

Colorful:
With all the white snow and grey snow the most colorful thing I took pictures of this week was my family and their outfit choices.  Oak and I are telling the children our great news at this moment and I needed it to be on "film."

Well, I hope you had a great week and a fun hunt!  It rained all day today, so most of the white is gone, but many are still without power and there are many fallen limbs from the heavy ice and wind.  Hopefully the power will all be restored soon...and it will be business as usual by Monday.

A great set this week, your "four" is fabulous, it is the perfect perspective.

Dorian Susan said...

Hey Cedar....been to long since I stopped for a visit. My fave is that 4 shot. I think it's very clever and even more so since you were warm and inside...that ice although pretty, looks nasty. cool icicles from the car too.

No Greater Love said...

Those shots of the plants with ice on them are incredible. :) And I love the icicle ones from your car. Even after yous saying it was from your car, I still can't tell it's a car. And I am with you...I would have totally stayed inside for the snowman picture. (for purely artistic reasons, of course.)

Kay Rhodes said...
